feedsack pillows and chicken soup...

i hope y'all have not been sick! i am now!... have not really been sick with the cold crud for several years. everyone usually gets it....hubster, kids, grandkids, but not me! i just keep on going like the everready (sp?) bunny!

well, until now - came on me the end of last week like razor blades in my throat and just so yucky feeling as it continues to have its way with me! but, lots of zinc cold tabs and hubby's homemade chicken soup and some vintage grainsacks are making me better.

i have to be just about dead to not want to sew. i went into the studio today to finish a custom order and then to treat myself, i made these two pillows from a vintage grainsack.

This old cotton sack once held oats distributed by the National Oats Company in East St. Louis, Illinois.

I will be glad when this old cold is gone and so is tax season - am tired of the 6 day work weeks - but 3 day work weeks are right around the corner.....and, so is my birthday...yep another one and it is this week!

hope everyone has a fab week - eat a cupcake, drink some wine, go junkin', have a facial or a hot soak in the tub - do it for me, for my birthay! xo c
